Kay can not make it this year, so DougJ and Mistermix will be the Balloon Juice reps at Netroots Nation this year. I’ve instructed them they need to wear Tunch t-shirts at any Balloon Juice meet-ups (and if any of you are going, you need to, as well!), and I also think they need to have substantive reviews of the panels they attend, complete with pictures and maybe, *GASP*, live blogging that people can follow with the NRN live feed.
Having said that, the website ads will be paying for their registration and gas (thank the pig picture you all are bitching about), but we need to raise a little scratch ($1300.00) to pay for hotels. If you are so inclined, please hit the paypal link up above to the left. I’d also like to get a roll call of readers who will be going, and if enough of you are interested maybe we can splurge and rent a room and cater an official Balloon Juice official meet-up. Otherwise, I predict it will just be DougJ coordinating “WE WILL BE AT BAR X at THIS TIME. COME!”
And no, I will not be in attendance. I am still an agoraphobic misanthrope who loves you all at a distance who would rather shower in prison than go subject myself to a conference full of thousands of people when I could just stay at home and love on my dogs and prune and water plants and maybe, just maybe, see one or two people a day walk by my house. But points for me loving you, right?
Basically, I’ve realized I’m the uni-bomber, but I adore technology and I only drop F-bombs. And I fucking love my dogs and my very secluded life.
But if you are so inclined and have some spare cash, help send our correspondents to NRN. This is kind of an important one, what with the election and all that.
Thanks in advance!
